Gazpacho

I don’t remember where I got this recipe.

2-1/2 c V-8 or other vegetable juice (use Spicy V-8 if you want)

1 c peeled, seeded, finely chopped fresh tomatoes (I used pear tomatoes and didn’t peel, seed, and my “fine chopping” is between 1/4 and 1/2 inch)

1/2 c finely chopped celery

1/2 c finely chopped cucumber

1/3 c finely chopped green bell pepper

1/2 c finely chopped green onion

3 T white wine vinegar

2 T extra-virgin olive oil

1 large clove garlic (I used 2)

2 t finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1/2 t salt

1/2 t black pepper

1/2 t ground red pepper (I probably added more, I didn’t measure)

and I added a few drops of Tabasco

Combine all, cover, refrigerate overnight.
